There are a few things you can do;
Make sure the heat is set all the way to HOT.
Look for a bleed screw, near thermostat housing or highest point in cooling system, and open it and close it when only a full and steady stream of fluid comes out. DO NOT OPEN IT WHEN SYSTEM IS HOT. OPEN IT WHEN YOU FIRST START THE ENGINE. YOU CAN OPEN IT JUST A BIT TO START, BUT REMEMBER, THIS IS HOT AND UNDER PRESSURE.
Simply keeping the engine running can help to bleed the coolant system. Fill it until the thermostat opens.
